Dear rick,

"To bad the paper is behind a paywall."

Eventually, either the preprint or actual paper might appear
online. Best look for a PDF version using Goggle Scholar.

The original paper is at:

Nutman, A.P., Bennett, V.C., Friend, C.R., Van Kranendonk, M.J.
and Chivas, A.R., 2016. Rapid emergence of life shown by
discovery of 3,700-million-year-old microbial structures. Nature,
537(7621), p.535-538

There is a summary:

Proposed early signs of life not set in stone
Efforts to find early traces of life on Earth often focus on structures
in ancient rocks, called stromatolites, that formed by microbial
activity. One of the oldest proposed stromatolite discoveries has
now been questioned.
